Chris Pratt and Katherine Schwarzenegger announced the birth of their daughter on Monday, according to CNN.

Pratt shared on social media that the baby girl will be named Lyla Maria Schwarzenegger Pratt, and also shared a photo with two Bible verses, CNN reported.

“We are beyond thrilled to announce the birth of our daughter,” Pratt wrote on Instagram.“We couldn’t be happier. Both mom and baby are doing great. We are extremely blessed.”

As part of the Instagram caption, Pratt also shared two verses from the book of Psalms in the Bible. One of the verses reads, “The LORD has done great things for us, and we are filled with joy.”

A source close to the couple told People magazine that Schwarzenegger was “going through all the first-time mom emotions. She is extremely happy, but a bit tired and overwhelmed.”

“Chris keeps being amazing though,” the source continued, according to People. “It’s comforting for Kat that he is already a dad and understands how it is to have a newborn.”

Lyla Maria is Pratt and Schwarzenegger’s first child together. The couple married in June 2019, according to USA Today. Pratt shares his 7-year-old son with ex-wife Anna Faris.
